CPBC "How To" on Home Inspection Licensing
Our Mission Statement: The Western Pacific Property Inspection Institute is committed to providing professional inspectors of residential real estate and commercial properties, with access to quality education despite work and personal commitments or living in a location which precludes attendance in classroom based programs.

To meet this objective, our courses have been developed to provide education using live online webinars combined with other distance delivery approaches.

We provide participants with the flexibility to take courses from anywhere in the Province of BC or beyond, while still continuing to work and live in their home communities.

Quick FAQ:

Q: How long does it take? A: Because of the CPBC requirements, it takes 6 months to complete. Two - 3 hour evening webinars per week plus a "lab".

Q: How much does it cost? A: Tuition is $4500 (paid in 2 installments). Textbooks are extra ($200 - $300 in total). This tuition rate is guaranteed to the end of 2018 and subject to an increase in 2019.

Q: Lab? A: There is a 3 day "hands on" session in houses here in Vernon. CPBC counts this as "education", not as "field training".

Q: Why does "made in BC" matter? A: Building performance is different in BC compared to, say Ontario, because of things like climate and seismic activity, etc. Our home inspection licensing requirements are also unique to BC.
